Neuroradiology Specific Resources
There are a number of other online resources that can be valuable to learners interested in neuroradiology ranging from medical students to advanced trainees and faculty. While not comprehensive, this is a short list of some of the resources available and worth checking out.
Learningneuroradiology.com is a website designed by University of Wisconsin neuroradiologist Tabbe Kennedy, MD. There is a lot of great content here, including a great deal of introductory level material covering imaging techniques, anatomy, and cases. It is a great place to start when learning the field of neuroradiology, especially for medical students and beginning residents. It has a curriculum based approach with specific goals and objectives which can be accomplished.
NeuroradiologyU is a website run by Judy Gadde, DO, a pediatric neuroradiologist at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. She prepares unknown cases, which initially are found on her Twitter (@judygadde). After a short run, on Twitter, the cases are archived here, where they can be searched and studied.
There is a broad range of content with an emphasis on pediatric neuroradiology.
The Cortex Club is a global community of learners and educators passionate about Neuroradiology & HN Imaging founded by Mohit Agarwal, a neuroradiologist at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, WI. The club is a group of educators who give lectures and sponsor online educational content online. Be sure to check it out to learn about online lectures, quizzes, webinars, and more!
This is a relatively new web site that has some interactive cases you can go through along with explanations of what the findings are. There are also some dedicated anatomy images that can walk you through some of the important intracranial anatomy. It’s definitely a work in progress but a welcome addition to the online resources available for residents to study anatomy and practice cases.
General Radiology Resources
While this site is focused on neuroradiology, there are similar websites in other areas that are worth checking out. This is not intended to be an exhaustive list, but may be useful for students and residents looking for other resources to learn from and guide their study.
To understand Radiopeadia, all you have to do is read it’s mission statement, which is to “create the best radiology reference the world has ever seen and make it available for free, for ever, for all.” This is a totally ambitious mission statement. And they live up to it!
Radiopaeidia is an extensive reference resource, with reference articles on almost every topic of interest. If it’s not there, you can even create it. It has resources for storing teaching cases and an insane amount of cases you can view. All for free. When I was a resident, we had to subscribe to an expensive annual service to get less useful information.
One final pro-tip: if you want to learn about a given topic, try just searching in your browser and add “radiopaedia” to the end. E.g. “cerebral hemorrhage radiopaedia”. Works every time!
Thanks to Frank Gaillard MBBS for keeping this site at its stellar level over the years.
This online resource for learning interventional radiology has been assembled by Jeff Elbich of Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). It has some great features, including a directed curriculum organized by residency year that can help radiology residents guide their study of IR. There are great powerpoint lectures that you can review at your own pace as well as cases that are structured towards teaching a particular topic or anatomy.
This is a free educational web site run by Amar Udare, MBBS, which covers a wide range of radiology topics, including neuroradiology. This excellent resource covers basic concepts such as anatomy and how to read a particular study type all the way to case preparation for board exams. It’s a great general resource and I recommend you check it out.
